    I would suggest just getting the actual swype app if you don't already have it installed. It looks like it was pre-installed on my phone. It also works a lot better than the continuous typing on the Samsung keyboard IMO

    You need to turn on predictive text for continuous input to become selectable.

    even when predictive text is enabled, continuous input stays grey.

    Have you got keyboard swipe selected? On mine it cancels the other when you choose the other so it's probably not the problem but I'll chuck it out there

    Sorry for the delay. It should be under continuous input.

    Turn on Predictive text and send another Screen Shot.

    It seems to work as expected on my phone, so maybe it's time for you to try clearing the keyboard settings to see whether that cures the problem.

    Go to: Settings -> Application manager -> All -> Samsung keyboard

    Then clear the cache and data, then press "Force stop". This should clear all the keyboard settings and reset it to its original state.

    There is nothing like samsung keyboard in app manager.

    it doesn't work on mine either although I gave up trying and use jellybean keyboard or swiftkey flow beta instead. I don't know why but I think its having the app Missed It installed that messes it up. Do you have this or any other app that has to be switched on in Accessibility? For some reason they don't play nicely together. Not sure if this theory is correct but I found something about it when searching the web when I first noticed continuos input didn't work for me

    Strange! Did you select "All" at the top of the App Manager screen? By default it only shows the downloaded apps.

    Although it's called Samsung keyboard on my phone now I'm sure it used to be called Samsung ime or something like that so it could be worth looking for that. Also as said above.

    strange indeed.

    You need to remove the tick from 'keyboard swipe' and then you'll be able to enable the gesture/swipe keyboard (continuous input) with the tick and glide your finger across the keyboard. I believe Samsungs's description is onerous as it leaves the impression that keyboard swipe is the gliding action where in fact it refers to swiping simply left or right.:)

    that even didn't work.

    I would go with the Swype beta instead. The Samsung Swype clone is a bit error prone as you don't have much control over it (not much in its settings) whereas Swype has plenty.
    I was using the Samsung swiper for a couple of weeks but it didn't feel anywhere near as smooth or accurate as Swype so I went crawling back!

    I disables it in settings and my keyboard worked fine
